How Do I Know They Are Who They Say They Are?

Online Relationships
Talking over the internet is a great way to meet new people and start new relationships and with the emergence of more and more online dating sites over the past few years, it is becoming an even more popular way of making new acquaintances. But, how much do you really know about the person you’re talking to? Online communication can hide a lot of details about a person and sometimes the person you thought you were talking to is actually more fiction than truth. It’s difficult to know who you can and can’t trust but this is where we could help you.

How to Keep Safe Online
Though the internet is a great way to meet people, it does have its restrictions and precautions need to be taken to ensure that all your relationships remain safe and happy. You can make sure that you remain safe by following a few basic precautions. Firstly, it is important that only registered sites are used and that only selective personal details are shared with anyone on the internet and on any profiles.

Where We Come In
If you have met someone online that you would like to find out more about before committing to a relationship or a meeting then we could provide you with the extra information you need to make an informed decision. If you have any details from the individual that you’re not sure about then we have the resources and methods available to us to verify any information that you have and discover anything new that could give you a fuller picture of the individual. We are able to answer all the questions you may not feel comfortable asking and can find out all the things you need to know about the new person in your life.

Background Checks
One of the most common ways that investigations like these begin is with a general background check. These checks can confirm any information that you already possess on an individual but can also be used to identify new details which can reveal a lot of information about a person. Background checks can provide details such as family situation, past addresses and many other things which can identify any misgiven information. If you think that some of the details that have been passed on to you from an individual are false or have been built up, then we could help you separate the fact from the fiction.

One of the methods of investigation that our operatives are able to use is surveillance and as there are several different types of surveillance, there is a method to suit every case. Surveillance involves the observation of an individual or a location for a decided period and can often reveal some surprising and interesting results. It can prove very useful in confirming the identity of someone you have met online and can make sure that images such as profile pictures are honest representations of the real person. If you want to clarify identity and appearance or confirm their living situation then surveillance could provide the certainty you need.
